Aston Villa Review: Episode 173 - transfers and tantrums

What a hideous time to be an Aston Villa supporter. A very active transfer window continued right into its final hours, during which an actual game of football had the temerity to burst our bubble. With the signing of Brentford's Scott Hogan waiting to be announced, the new Villa man's former club destroyed his new one in front of the television cameras.

After that reality check, another. Villa lost at Nottingham Forest on Saturday to round off an appalling week and to continue our poor start to 2017. If January killed off our play-off hope, February's conduct with its corpse has been questionable at best. In this week's Aston Villa Review, Chris and Steve welcome some new faces and lament some old habits.

    • It's an East coast West coast thang
    • 100% agree. kids with cardboard that product wont last for long definitely wont be like wii sports and wii fit. nintendo need to concentrate more on bringing more titles out and bringing some games over from the wii u like mario maker (with extras) or a new game altogether 
    • Just saw this mentioned in the Birmingham Mail and I'm posting it as I don't remember reading about it last year. I think some people were cynical about our being hamstrung by FFP but as of 2016 we had a bigger wage bill than Atletico Madrid. Sure we've got rid of some big earners in that time. And added a whole load more. I hope Man City Melbourne are paying all of McCormack's wages.  http://www.theversed.com/43825/aston-villa-fans-bigger-atletico-madrid/#.O1516G2609d5556i0

    • Villa selling out against small heath, great news. However, there are so many posts about why don’t “you lot” come every week #better fan. Pisses me off. If people want to go every week then great. If people want to go now and again, should also be acceptable shouldn’t it?  
    • Reality check for some Wolves fans last night with that defeat to lowly swansea 
    • Seems a remarkably good ROI for this investment strategy. Pay £50k to the Tory party to get a seat at the dinner party, get told which businesses to short, make £7.6m from it. Genius. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/theresa-branded-total-hypocrite-trousering-11868280.amp "A register held by the Financial Conduct Authority states Naya held “short positions” in Carillion between 2015 and July 12, 2017 – two days after the construction giant issued its first profit warning. The drop in Carillion’s shares happened within days at the start of July. A Reuters report at the time claimed London firm Naya, founded in 2012 by former Goldman Sachs banker Masroor Siddiqui, made £7.6million. It made its donation to the Conservative Party on June 1 – exactly a week before the election"
    • I'd prefer that over seeing them become The Ascension mk II on the main roster 
    • It's quite smart in how it works, it uses the IR camera on the right Joycon in very clever ways. But... It's for kids. And it's ultimately cardboard string and stickers. It's... It's very much a short term experience thing. Cardboard isn't exactly known for its resilience, and there almost certainly won't be much depth to any of this. It just feels very modern Nintendo. It'll probably do well but I suspect nobody will look back on it with nostalgia the way people do with stuff like Wii Sports.
